"White Balance"

When a white teen-aged girl and an African-American teen-aged boy coincidentally vanish on the same night, Jack attempts to counteract Vivian's prediction that the media and FBI will focus on the white girl's case.

Race becomes an issue when kids from two ...)

When a pretty young white girl goes missing, someone has to pay, that's just the ways of the world. Aruba should have taken some career criminal scumbag who was out at the time and just framed him. It would have ended the circus, for all involved.

This topic has got more pub based on the overwhelming coverage of the Aruba situation when compared to the LaToyia Figueroa case. The situation made many people angry about how CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News neglected coverage of her disappearance in favor of the Aruba case.

Well, while it's obviously a race issue primarily, it's also a gender and looks issue. White guys going missing goes over like a lead balloon. I think it's race, gender, and looks all combined. I never see news stories about an ugly white girl who is missing, though I thought that chick from Atlanta was not pretty, but I wouldn't put her in dog category either and she came from money.

I'd like to see a missing hot Black chick with money versus an average to ugly middle-class white guy who goes missing and see who gets more publicity.
